Start off your visit on the 2nd (Sun): admire the sheer force of Afu Aau Waterfall and then explore the striking landscape at Alofaaga Blowholes. Here are some ideas for day two: tour the pleasant surroundings at Falealupo Canopy Walk and then don't miss a visit to Swimming with Turtles.

For photos, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Savai'i day trip planning site .

Sydney, Australia to Savai'i is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of flight and ferry. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Sydney to Savai'i due to the time zone difference. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) to allow time to travel to Apia.

The Samoan capital of Apia serves as the first port of call for most visitors, and it plays home to a number of historic sites, a laid-back seaside promenade, and a range of hotels and restaurants keeping tourists entertained.
Get out of town with these interesting Apia side-trips: To Sua Ocean Trench (in Lotofaga) and Lalomanu Beach (in Lalomanu). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, don't miss a visit to Samoa Cultural Village, take in the dramatic scenery at Papapapaitai Falls, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Apia Market.
